While it is unclear what the report will conclude, or what the Biden administration will do as a result of the report, activists and some Democrats have long been asking for the US to help “climate migrants”.

The letter also stated that the Biden administration should not expand this definition through administrative action, nor participate in the efforts of some activist groups.
